Call for Abstracts

The Scottish Cardiac Society invite abstract submissions related to academic clinical and scientific research as well as the results of projects in service development and quality improvement.  Submissions are welcome from clinical and research physicians, nurses, cardiac physiologists, other allied healthcare professionals and medical students.

Emily Taylor Travel Fund – Autumn Meeting prizes
Several travel grants will be awarded to assist with attendance at a future meeting relevant to cardiology or cardiac surgery.

  • Best abstract oral presentation by a non-consultant physician (£250)
  • Best abstract poster presentation by a non-consultant physician (£250)
  • Best abstract oral presentation by a Nurse, Cardiac physiologist, or AHP (£250)
  • Best abstract poster presentation by a Nurse, Cardiac physiologist, or AHP (£250)

Awards are subject to the applicant being a member of the SCS and submitting a report to be presented at an SCS meeting and/or publication on SCS website.

Medical Student Prize
There will be two prizes (worth £200 each) awarded for the best medical student abstract presentation (oral and poster).  These will be awarded to assist with attendance at a future meeting relevant to cardiology or cardiac surgery, a student elective, or for another educational purpose.

For all categories of prize there should be more than one submission for the prize to be awarded.  In the event of a single submission for any given category it will be for the independent judging panel to decide whether that presentation is of sufficient quality to justify the award being granted.
